I was a maintainer of PlayOnLinux on Fedora for some time and now is
the time to say goodbye to the PlayOnLinux package. It won't be shipped
anymore on Rawhide (Fedora 32).
Reason is: It's python 2 only, it won't be migrated by upstream and
there will not be any python 2 on Fedora 32.
There is work in progress by upstream to make a new version in Java
called phoenicis so they are writing it from scratch. The point is,
I don't want to maintain Java based package. I don't have enough
experience with Java and honestly I don't like Java based desktop
applications (personal opinion).
It was great to have this package in Fedora from 2016 but now it's
time to say goodbye! If someone wants to look on the new PlayOnLinux
version in Java feel free to start Fedora packaging :).
Have a great day everyone,
I'm orphaning subdownloader becasuse Python3 version still and perhaps
will stay forever in a pré beta version . And still have many bug which
make it unusable .
However I checked today and we have some new commits  .
Anyway I decide focus my time in others projects ,,,

libcdaudio last version was released in 2005 , I almost sure that
isn't used in any package anymore for a long time, I think libcdio
superseded it , so I decided orphan it .

recently, I've seen few users running Fedora with nomodeset. They didn't
know about that and were just complaining about poor resolution and/or
performance (and those systems worked just fine without nomodeset). Also,
sometimes, users choose basic video driver because something is broken, but
the broken state can change over time.
That led me to an idea - wouldn't it be better to provide some info for
users running Basic Video Driver that they're probably not getting the best
What came to my mind?
Having two GRUB entries for Fedora - with and without nomodeset. Users who
would install system while booted with nomodeset would see grub every time
with nomodeset option being default for the first time and then defaulting
to the last used entry.
Apart from this, there could be either notification (or window) shown every
time GNOME is launched with basic video driver, probably with some basic
information and link to Fedora Docs explaining what that does mean.

I released new version of Mock and mock-core-configs. For full release notes see:
I just submitted packages to Bodhi.
I would like to point two things here:
1) It should fixes all those issues you reported in past days (selinux, rprivate, groupadd).
2) Mock now supports subscription-manager, which allows you to build packages for RHEL with cost-free developer license.
No need to wait for CentOS 8.
Big thanks to Pavel Raiskup who done those two things.
